Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Key & Peele is a sketch comedy series that satirizes stereotypes about the African-American experience. Violence and sexual innuendo are frequent elements of the comedy sketches, though without much detail. The series alternates between intelligent and sharp commentary on African-American life and broader humor that capitalizes on violence and adult language for laughs.
Some sexual content as part of comedy sketches, including suggestive comments about genitalia. Occasional mock sexual activity -- sometimes suggesting crude acts -- but nothing is actually visible.
Obviously fake violence is frequently used as punchlines to sketches -- for example, a sketch about rapper Lil' Wayne in which the rapper is comically stabbed (no blood).
Frequent use of "damn," "dick" and "bitch." Occasional stronger words bleeped, such as "s--t" and "f--k."
The show's sketches satirize many of the stereotypes surrounding modern African-American culture, underscoring the role of comedy as an effective way to examine society. But a lot of the skits are just plain silly.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Drinking, drug use, and smoking are occasionally satirized as part of the show's comedy. One of the comedians says he "smokes weed" during an introductory talk.
